from a receiver, and what's a hit that's too hard. in football, defensive backs are taught to separate the wide receivers from the ball. that requires a lot of contact. we certainly don't want to see guys hurt. we certainly want safety to be a priority. but you have to understand the nature of the game. i think when you're a police officer, you understand what your job is. when you're a fireman, you understand what your job is. there are hazards and risks that go with it. when you sign that contract and put a uniform on, you may wind up waking up like i do every morning taking a lot more time out to get out of bed to make sure all the sore parts get working in the right way. >> joe theismann, thanks for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >>> and on the eve of super bowl xlvii, cnn is live in new orleans with our take on the biggest sporting event in the country. what it means to the city, how it became such a cultural phenomenon, and more. we welcome rachel nicholls as she hosts "kickoff in new orleans," a cnn bleacher report special, this afternoon 4:00 p.m. eastern. >>> should a
wind up the secretary of defense. that's the best explanation i can come up with. other than he just didn't sleep well the night before and wasn't good. >> well, still, ruth, and all the rest of you, how does this leave him? assume that he gets confirmed, he has to be a tough -- a tough guy at the pentagon. he is going to be tough with congress. he has to deal with the potential of the sequester, fighting for the budget that he does get, dealing with all of the problems that come at you when you are in charge of the pentagon and the generals and the other members of the joint chiefs are going to feel they can run over him. >> we'll see about that. i assume that every general with any number of stars was watching intently yesterday, and might have had that thought in mind. you said another important word, which is sequester. it's going to be a huge mess over there trying to, first, anticipate this, and then deal with whatever the new reality is. i do think that it was ugly yesterday. it was ugly on both sides. the white house wasn't so much from what i heard defending his performance
. he has been nominated for secretary of defense, and the neo-cons are not thrilled about the prospect of hagel heading up the military because they are concerned that he won't protect the defense budget from the sharp spending cuts that are expected with the ending of the wars in iraq and afghanistan, and the looming threat of the sequester, those cuts could slash the pentagon's budget -- here is what the pentagon's budget is $553 billion and the sequester would slash that budget by $50 billion this year. so the pentagon is looking into what areas it could cut from maintenance on warships to military base operations. last friday the pentagon announced layoffs for 46,000 contract and temporary civilian employees. 46,000. so if chuck hagel makes it through this mine field of senate confirmation questions, he'll inherit another challenge which is how to manage and advocate on behalf of a gigantic government department that believes it has been reduced to scrounging for change. joining me tonight to talk about this is fred kaplan, fred is the author

of sort of crystalizing what it is his job is. you know, when you are secretary of defense, yes, you are part of the decision-making team for the national security in this country. but at the end of the day, you don't operate in a vacuum. you know, you operate with the secretary of state, the national security advisor and at the end of the day president barack obama is the one who makes decisions. you take out those decisions. to some extent. i had this conversation. i was sort of dealing with this in my mind. they were trying to get him on iran and, like he is horrible on iran. at the end of the day, you know, to some extent the military the defense department is in a vacuum here unless the president orders military the defense department really doesn't -- it's irrelevant whether or not he believes in sanctions or not. >> i think it's pretty ridiculous what these meetings have turned into with cabinet members. we saw it more after barack obama is president. this is chuck hagel, a bona fide war hero a veteran, a republican. >> check. >> a former senator

in, especially in the defense sector. is this something to get concerned about? are we on track for a recession which would be two consecutive negative quarters of growth? >> well, you ask yourself, how could the market shrugged off a report that was superficially this week? the reality was that we knew look underneath the hood, so to speak, and look to some of the details, the consumer spending was decent. the housing was booming. most importantly, businesses started dong capitol spending again. they pulled back in the third quarter, with the camera back in the fourth quarter even though there were all these concerns about this bill cliff. and what it tells you is, there is a lot of resilience in the private sector. ." lori: you are taking a positive spin on this to looking at the bright side, but we are still facing sequestration, these deep cuts in defense spending. we know that the 22% decline in defense spending in the fourth quarter led to this negative print, the big driver of the negative. so if we get even more defense cuts will likely cause, right, it could even bring

that you can to demonstrate unequivocally why diplomacy and development are right up there with defense. how when we think about who we are as americans, it's because we are united and committed across our government to do whatever is required to fulfill the missions we have assumed as public officials and public servants. >> right up there with defense. that is one of the big ideas of the obama presidency, right? essentially, reorienting how america deals with the world away from the u.s. military and toward u.s. diplomacy. to upscale our soft power capacity as a country so we have more options beyond just the option of force. this president did a lot to advance that idea simply by putting somebody as high profile as hillary clinton in the job of america's head diplomat. but the overall goal of upscaling state, upscaling diplomacy and development so they are right up there with defense, like she said today, that is widely regarded as a goal that is not yet realized. secretary clinton alluded to that fact today when she said she now plans to become an advocate for that cause from the ou

for defense secretary chuck hagel. >>> also, an unfolding scandal involving a united states senator denying allegations of prostitution and free plane trips. >>> eight "new york times" reveals its been under attacks for months by someone in china. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we were bracing for fireworks at today's confirmation hearing for defense secretary nominee chuck hagel but it actually turned out to be even a lot tougher than many of us expected. republicans grilled hagel raising serious questions about his past statements and positions, especially about israel and iran. at times, hagel seemed to struggle to answer some of those tough questions and other times he gave answers he later had to clarify. let's go to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. jessica, it was a tough, tough day for chuck hagel? >> reporter: so far it has been, wolf. chuck was battered by republicans, forcing some stumbles and bruising. so far, no knockout blow but the day of questioning is not over yet. former senator chuck hagel sat at the table alone fielding hostile questi
to have to face defense secretary if he gets confirmed senator chuck hagel during those hearings is this question of sequestration, something that would be on the table, of course, these defense cuts. first he has got to get through the confirmation issue and, boy, was it a rough confirmation hearing. >> kel well, compare it how quickly they confirm john kerry, right? >> right. >> this is the other end of the spectrum. it was almost uncomfortable to watch it times getting hammered by a number of senators. >> pretty much every pundit that you heard from said pathetic, he seemed confused. he messed up some policies he wasn't even familiar with containment. and president obama's position on that. getting notes handed to him. but at the same time, we have got jay carney saying he is doing great. >> yeah. let's listen to him. >> today senator hagel answered the questions appropriately and did a fine job. we believe he will be confirmed. as i said before, he has, i think there has been increase in the number of senators who have come out in support of him. not a decrease. since the hea
scholar and activist, and with the legal defense fund, derrick bell was handling the cases that ended up segregating schools in mississippi, and when i interviewed him late in his life, he said that as a young person, he was shocked to find that the community schools in mist masissippi did not want to segregate, but they wanted equalization, and resources. when they sthad that we cannot fight a equalization case, the naacp, and so then they went back to the governor and said, unless you equalize the schools, we will segregate, but segregating is the last option. people wanted to have actual resourced functioning schools in their own community even if the schools were entirely black. >> and it is interesting, jackie, because i started this by talking about the "brown" case, and particularly the part that was the kenneth clark dahl studies and the supreme court saying we have to integrate, and if we don't, we will end up with african-american children having a negative sense of themselves and black children picking white dolls, and we saw these studies replicated in a little film of " "gir
is from a conservative group called americans for strong defense. at least five other groups from the right and left are a organizing to block hagel's nomination. the president out on tuesday. republican congressman paul ryan said both parties are waiting on the president. >> the question many of us are asking, is he looking to play politics or does he want to solve the problem? we don't know the answer to that yet. we know there are a late of democrats in kwg who want to solve this problem, fix this mess and many of us agree with that. >> white house correspondent peter alexander joining me live. on tuesday can we expect to hear from the president about actual legislation or is he going to give us more of the contours of what future legislation would resemble? >> he is diving head first into this major policy speech of his second term. it is going to take place in a state well familiar with the issue of illegal immigration. one of the risks of proposing specific legislation, a bill that has his name on it runs the risk of potentially alienating republicans who might support an ov
don't want to cut defense spending, in fact, in the romney campaign they wanted to raise it quite a bit. in theory, you shouldn't cut medicare for anybody retiring in the next ten years, so you can't get cuts there if you stick to that. the whole budget, it is only about a trillion and a half dollars. that is all of our spending on the poor and education, and skills training and research, everything else we're doing, it is about a trillion and a half. and ryan needs $800 billion. is ryan really going to cut all that by half, by more than half? that would be the most unpopular budget in history, it would be a disaster. or would the republican party change their promises and cut into medicaid or social security in the next ten years? this is what they have backed themselves into, these choices. there is a reason why ryan, who is really a conservative guy, who is trying to create a budget, that was a genuinely conservative guy, if you're not raising taxes you can't do it in a reasonable way. there is a reason he is having to do it now. it was a price house conservatives demanded for
solution, and this is where the united states has talked about smart power that's not just defense and diplomacy but also includes economic development. and that's really the key in trying to deal with the intense poverty and sense of need and desperation in this large and strategically located african nation. i was in bamaco in the 1990s during the first visit of the secretary of state and the great question was mali as a model for africa, could you have democracy endure in a country which doesn't have much of a middle class, where poverty is so rampant and doesn't have a whole lot of outside aid to help it develop. and so the great question is not just how many resources are devoted right now to get rid of the jihadists, extremists, marginalize, recapture the north, allow for democratic elections to put back a representative government, but what do you do, what does the outside world do to create a viable state and stabilize -- create a model all over again in this region now of deep instability? >> the outside world can't ever do that in my view. i don't think it's ever succeed
. >> joe, first of all, let me ask you this. the white house didn't jump to his defense after that stuff. why not? >> who didn't? >> the white house. the white house didn't jump to his defense. >> the white house has a sense that he has a good chance to be confirmed and everybody know that is the hearings will be contentious. no doubt there will be a lot of consengz and a lot of bad blood between this senator and colleagues and many who question his stance with regard to iran and how strong he would be and also with regard to israel. expect contention. that doesn't mean he won't be confirmed. i don't think the white house will jump to his defense. >> again, white house didn't jump to his defense. one republican opponent took to politico to point out his continued opposition. this is what he wrote in part. when a nominee tries to disavow his past positions on virtually every foreign policy issues all at the same time it raises serious questions. >> if hagel is confirmed by a strict party vote, how will it affect his relationship with republicans in congress? >> it sticks that he went from
with democrats and republicans in congress to put the budget on a path to balance and saved defense. i think the sequester is going to happen because that $1.2 trillion in spending cuts, we can't lose those spending cuts. and don't for get one other thing. i wrote legislation and passed it in the house twice to replace those sequesters with cuts in other areas of government. we have shown how to protect defense spending by cutting spending in other areas. in our budget last year, we did take money out of defense. just not nearly as much as the president seems to want to. but we think the sequesters will happen because the democrats have opposed our efforts to replace those cuts with others and offered no alternatives. >> is this worth shutting the government down over? >> no one is talking about shutting the government down. >> well, it's a piece of the leverage that conservatives have. you didn't want to fight over the debt ceiling because you thought you can't do that, you have to pay the government's bills. do you think this fight over priority is worth shutting the government down? >> we
not carry over here. >> let me ask each of you about the cut-backs on defense. this seems crucial to me. i don't know if you saw the "wall street journal" had an op-ed saying why the french can't fight. provocative title and they backed it up with the facts that they pulled. they have a point of view but they note that the french are deploying into mali right now with barely half the vehicles that they had four years ago. there have been so many cut-backs in the french military. barney frank always used to tell me they're freeloading off the u.s. everyone freeloads off the u.s. military but if we start cutting back dramatically are we going to end up in a situation where we can't fight a traditional war, the only thing worse than having to be the country that bears the security risk for the whole world is not being able to do it? >> let me jump in here because quite frankly, that goes to the essence of why we have a government and our senior leadership as we discuss these fiscal cuts needs to get to the heart of why we have a government in the first place. if you go back to the preamble of
, greg? >> for a while, yeah. i think on march 1 we begin at least on defense and discretionary spending. if there's enough sidewalking maybe by late spring, early sum eshg it gets undone. we'll have that. there's still some headwinds. there's this and the higher payroll tax. maybe first-half growth would be a little slow but i think the storm is sending us a message that by the second half things could be looking much better. >> this week, austin, we moved closer to the automatic across the board spending cuts, the sequester that president obama promised us would never happen. listen a few months ago. >> first of all, the sequester is not something that i propose, it's something congress has po pro-posed. it will not happen. >> i don't know, austin. that could be the one election promise the president fails to keep, the sequester a critical part of the fiscal cliff punt that delayed a new year's decision on those cut on march 1st. what is if the sequester happens? >> well, in fairness, i think that cliff was about the that the sequester would not happen on january 1st, because he was sa
